2013 Division II World Series heads to Paducah | Community Spirit
PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The 2013 National Club Baseball Association Division II World Series will take place at Brooks Stadium in Paducah, Ky.
The eight teams that win their respective districts within the NCBA Division II will be participating in the tournament where a National Champion will be crowned. The event will start on May 17 with the Championship Game concluding the tournament on the May 21.
Named for Paducah Baseball Association President J. Polk Brooks, the stadium was built over 60 years ago. It is one of the oldest baseball parks still in use in the state of Kentucky.
"Brooks Stadium and the Paducah community have a strong tradition of hosting successful collegiate baseball tournaments," said Paducah Convention and Visitor's Bureau Sales Director Fowler Black. "We're confident that the 2013 NCBA DII World Series will be a great experience for the student-athletes and their fans."
He said the city would be a great location because Paducah is a very centralized geographic location within a day's drive of two-thirds of the U.S. population and at the heart of America's inland waterways.
"I am extremely excited with the fact that the 2013 NCBA Division II World Series will be held at Brook's Stadium in Paducah, Kentucky," said NCBA Vice President of Division II Baseball Operations Christian Smith. "Selecting a location for the DII World Series is never an easy task. Finding a city and a stadium has to meet several important characteristics."
